Where is Satan's Throne in Pergamum? Michael Heiser Discusses Revelation

Video from Bible Nerds

Is or was Satan's throne a real place?

"In Revelation 2, John writes to the church in Pergamum and tells them they live with Satan. Dr. Michael Heiser posits the top candidates for what the "throne of Satan" means. Revelation 2:12-13 NIV 12 “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. 13 I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives. This comes from a Naked Bible Podcast episode where Dr. Heiser goes through the Old Testament references in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation in the Bible. Dr. Heiser mostly ignores end times prophecy which is where scholars usually go when talking about this book, also known as the Revelation of John. He goes back to ancient history to find out if Satan's throne is a real place. There are enough temples and courts in the Greco-Roman world that could be great candidates, including a temple to the Greek god Zeus." from video introduction.
